1941: Counter Attack is a vertical scrolling shoot'em up released by Capcom in 1990. It can be considered as the sequel to 1943: The Battle of Midway.
The goal of 1941 is pretty simple. We need to shoot down all enemies on screen and try to avoid being shoot down.
Like 1943, we have a life energy bar that will reduced when being hit. Also, we can use the life energy to perform super attack like lightning strike or spread boom.
There are also numerous power ups that we can pick up during the level. Some will give us weapon upgrades while some will give us life energy.
As usual, there are bosses in the end of each level. The bosses are not difficult to kill though.
If you like 1943, you should not miss 1941. It offers far better graphics and more exciting level design.
